Firstly, thanks for the prompt reply. Now, here's a related doubt. If
I insert a USB drive when  I'm on a xen host (my dom0). Does the xen
guest recognize it like on VMWare. I've noticed on VMWare that if a
pen drive is inserted it shows up on both, the guest and the host. So
this mount is treated via an event channel or a hypercall or both? If
it's recognized on both, is there some way I can only get it
identified on the guest? I haven't tried it yet since I just switched
to a new box.
